Welcome to Olly Medland and Olly Agliano - new Buzzard team riders.
Had to write and let you know that the
fat boy you so kindly rushed me for my trip to Gan Canaria performed
fantastically well. As you may remember I am 6 foot and 17 ½
stone (fat boy for a fat man). For a full week at Maspolmas Light
house I had wicked rides in heavy conditions
8 feet over the reef, including a ride of over 100m!!!! The buoyancy of the board was brilliant (I could even sit on it), and the side fins made tracking along the steep wave faces easy. Thanks for making a fat whale look like they knew what they where doing. The only down side to the whole trip was the £30 the air line charged me for carriage.
Congratulations to Taz! Buzzard team rider Taz Sheppard form Bude won Women's title at the Open at Fistral at the end of November, beating rival Jemma Harris from Wales.
Bodyboard school update: there has been such a demand for the bodyboard building courses that Buzzard Bodyboards are now running them throughout the autumn and winter of 2003-2004.
Local bodyboarding enthusiasts will have a chance this summer to learn how a bodyboard is made - and design and make their own custom board.
Buzzard Bodyboards owner Dave Lunnen said: 'We have run a bodyboard construction course for the students on the Surf Science course at the University of Plymouth very successfully now for three years. There has been such a lot of interest that we are planning to offer the course to anyone who is interested this summer."
The summer school courses cost £200 and each person will take away with them their own custom made bodyboard. The four-day non-residential courses will be held during July and early August, depending on demand, with a maximum of four places on each course.
For more details and to book your place, contact Dave at Buzzard Bodyboards by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone on 01841 520558 (answerphone out of working hours).
